The New Jersey Edition: Second Serving Sunday

A weekly peek backwards and a look ahead, from my little corner of the blogosphere…are you ready?

Life Stuff:

So, how was your life this past week? Mine was busy, and wonderful.

The early part of the week was spent in taking care of business – Annalise finished her state-required testing, and I made progress with hometending, yardtending, and writing stuff, not to mention packing and preparing for our trip to visit friends five hours away in a neighboring state.

Thursday was a driving day, and, since then, we’ve been here, enjoying companionship, swimming, a movie, walks around the neighborhood, chats over coffee, an art festival, and many other things friends do when they get together not often enough…

Sleeping wasn’t high on that priority list – it never seems to be, for me, when I travel. Writing, too, took a secondary position, which doesn’t mean that no writing got done, just that it’s taken a backseat to life – and I’m OK with that. The writing will happen later, once we’re home again, because living richly fills my well, and then the ideas flow, and so do the words…

Later today, we do our five hour drive home, and then there will be a time of quiet, and settling in, and creation…and now, onto this week’s blogging business!

In the Wilds of Internet-Land:


I am myself. I own my life, and live with three other people who own theirs. My intention is to do only those things that bring me joy, and to give myself wholly to those things I do. Writing has been my passion throughout my life, and this will become the home for my writing life...because it brings me great joy!
